I have a hanging plant right across from my front door.
I noticed on Friday that I had a pair of very determined birds who were building a nest in the plant. I have had this happen before and it makes it very tricky to water the plant.
Since I did not want to deal with the nest, eggs, mama bird I removed the nest.
They just fussed and went right back to work.
I then went in and retrieve some rubber snakes I have thanks to my son, a trip to the zoo when he was in about 4th grade and placed a snake in the basket.
Do you think they cared?
No, they just figured out it was fake and stated a new nest.
Okay, I removed the hanging basket, you win.
Next morning, new nest in a small bucket next to the kitchen door.
You win I thought and I get it you are going to build in something let's try something we can agree on.
We have this teapot that was a second from many kiln firings ago that we have over by the kiln.
There have been at least two nest built in it.
I went and got it, cleaned it out, washed it and hung it.
You can just see the start of a new nest going in.
I was happy we could work that out.
We, Mark and our son, relocated the a very cozy, make myself at home, I like it here, garter snake out of the blueberries.
He/she has gone to live way on the other side of the pond.
I might have ended up with a whole ball of snakes in the yard.
We had a very nice visit from our son who has been brewing beer, good beer. He is working on getting Mark interested in brewing again. Mark use to make beer back in the day when we could not get beer here without driving 25-45 minutes.
And even then the choices were not as good as they are now. He brewed and he and I bottled.
Well let's just say there are better ways, better supplies and better choices in the brew department as well.
This one is quite good- an IPA .
Now how are we going to get any work done?
